One Year of Blogging

Today marks one year of blogging here at the South Kansas City Observer. I started this blog because I had opinions and I needed some place to put them. Little did I know that this would lead to...

attending more community meetings then I ever have in my life!

Taking in local high school sports!

Going to City Hall!

Along the way, we've met lots of adorable Waifs!

and seen some beautiful cars!

We became a part of the effort to save our world class EMS service. Alas, we did not succeed, but we're keeping our eye on things over there at the FD.

And we made note of lots of interesting Midwestern weather!

We learned to write more in the active voice (passive voice is the voice of choice for the medical record), we learned how to kype photos off the net, to take and use our own pictures, and to loosen up a bit with regard to the writing process. (Still kind of slow, but getting better!)
We've written some opinions, and with that, found out where our beliefs are firm, and where we're a little mushy, or need to think things out more. We've found great online friends and readers, and great online writers too. We've done a lot of thinking and learning in a year.

So thank you to my friends, on line and off, and to all my readers for your support, and I am looking forward to another great year!

Wow, did I do all that?
